Howdy,
Can anybody show me how to browse / advanced search through the netlabel archive, filtering by the license the artist has chosen. I've tried searching for words in the metadata, but it doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions? I want to separate derivative and non-derivate licensed work.
ta,
Mark.

This is possible, but incredibly difficult to work out. However, I just did, yay:

http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=collection%3A%28netlabels%29%20AND%20%2Fmetadata%2Flicenseurl%3A%28%22http%3A%2F%2Fcreativecommons.org%2Flicenses%2Fby-nc-nd%2F2.5%2F%22%29

This is the URL for the 'no derivations' version. If you can find the right Creative Commons URL for the other license versions and insert them in, then you should be able to find those too. There's additional complications like some netlabel releases having earlier versions of the license and new netlabel licenses not being listed in netlabels in many cases and UGH, but it's actually theoretically possible now.

Is there a creative commons link to plug into that for the ones where people have marked "public domain" (even though that's not actually a cc license)? I think particularly in the films collections people have asked about looking for those.

EDIT: OOh, I figured out an example, thanks for the strategy! :)
